D'OH! Homer Simpson beer defended in Colombia
Colombian brewers have been in a legal battle with 20th Century Fox, saying the "Duff" brand cannot belong to the News Corporation subsidiary as it only appears "in a fictional world," reported French news agency AFP on Tuesday.
The brewers originally named the beer "Duff Beer" after the preferred drink of cartoon character Homer Simpson, and then were forced to change the name to "DuH Beer" after being sued by 20th Century Fox.
Brothers Alvaro and Oscar Ballesteros founded Duff Sudamérica in Bogota in 2007, registering the trademark the following year, and now produce 24,000 units a month.
